Nearly two dozen infant children have received skull fractures as a result of a problem with Bumbo Baby Seats (photo).. The Consumer Product Safety Commission says that babies can wiggle out of the seats, fall and be harmed.
The Bumbo seats were sold at Babies R Us, Target, Walmart, and other retailers between August 2003 and August 2012. Now, some 4 millions seats have been recalled.
About one million of the seats were recalled in October 2007. This recall was made to place additional warning labels on the seats to warn of the risk of placing the seats on raised surfaces.
This time, the problem that needs to be addressed in the recall is the addition of a restraint belt to enhance the safety of children using the seat. New instructions will also be given on safe use of the seat. The new repair kit should be ordered by visiting www.BumboUSA.com or calling 866-898-4999. The product should not be used until the repairs are made.
